Psyche and Soma
Life is a spiral journey between profound joys and sorrows. In one moment, we are transported by a mere instinct, and in the next, to another place and time psychologically, physically, or spiritually. The awareness we bring to that moment is the bridge between psyche/mind and soma/body. This awareness is where change happens. C.G. Jung speaks of this journey as the path of individuation. The deepest levels of transformation occur at what he refers to as the psychoid level of the psyche—that place where matter and soul meet. Through lecture and discussion, we explore what this means in the relationship of the ego to the Self, how this can spontaneously evolve, and why the bridge beyond words is life’s vital and creative necessity.
